Parkrun 2018: End of year report

2018 was another busy parkrun year for my family, with my husband, dad and I running more times than ever. But we’re not the only ones, parkrun is something my whole family does. We’ve also got out and about and tried a few different parkruns. So I thought I’d compile an end of year report for all of us. And the main conclusion is – we all need to volunteer a bit more!

  1. Och, I just had to read this. I’m feeling a bit lost at the moment. A long, long running injury mans I’ve had to give up running altogether. I’ve made very good friends with an exercise bike to keep fit but I feel sad about not running any longer. That said, It’s good to read how well you’re all doing. I am impressed. Clearly you have a very active family Sarah.

    • I’m so sorry to hear that you can’t run at all! I know that I would find that very hard, although I would do exactly the same as you and just switch to a bike. My family haven’t always been active, but that’s the power of parkrun! I genuinely think that none of them would be running at all if it wasn’t for parkrun, but it has got my brother-in-law into half marathons and got my husband back into them.
